Shared note
Declaration of Intention from the U.S. Labor Department and U.S. census records: Born in Genesee County, New York, most likely in Pembroke, Newton was in Antrim County, Michigan in 1877 with his family. He married Ida Belle Jackson and moved by covered wagon to Oregon in 1891, because he had injured his back in the Michigan woods. His son, John Robertson Swift said that Newton had told him that the doctors had given him only two years to live. Newton was a very good carpenter, especially detail work. He was known for the fine bows and arrows he made as well as fishing rods. The detailing on these items were truly a work of art. Newton went to Alberta, Canada with his son, John Robertson Swift, to homestead. John went in 1909, and Newton in the spring of 1910. They had adjoining homesteads. Newton stayed and worked the summers and John worked the winters. Newton's wife Ida Belle, did not go to Canada with Newton and John She was very upset that she lost her U.S. citizenship because Newton gave up his to homestead in Canada. Newton returned to Mill City, Oregon in 1928. He died from injuries in an automobile accident in August of that same year. The following is from the Oregon Statesman newspaper, dated August 3,1928: Mill City, August 2 (Special) Newton A. Swift, carpenter, who has resided in Mill City for the past 35 years, was killed today when an automobile driven by his wife went over the grade on the Detroit Highway about three miles east of Niagra. The car evidently skidded in loose dirt and got out of the control of Mrs. Swift, who had had little experience in driving, hurtled over the edge and rolling over and over on the rocks and logs plunged 75 feet down the steep embankment. Mr. and Mrs. Swift were thrown out of the car when it was 25 feet from the bottom. Mr. Swift's right arm was broken and his back injured, but internal injuries were responsible for his death which occurred about noon today, after he had been rushed to the Mill City Hospital. Mrs. Swift, who is 61 years old, is prostrated with grief. Her injuries were confined to ???ful lacerations of the head which are??? The car had been purchased by Mrs. Swift only about a month ago, and she had not driven more than 400 miles. Mr. and Mrs. Swift celebrated their 44th wedding anniversary ?? They were well known in the Mill City vicinity. Th following is from record #305 U.S. Department of Labor=Declaration of Intention, State of Oregon, County of Linn, In the Circuit Court of Oregon for Linn County: I, Newton Aldridge Swift, age 66 years, occupation carpenter, do declare on oath that my personal description is" Color white, complexion dark, Height 6 feet, weight 165 pounds, color of hair brown, color of eyes brown, other visible distinctive marks none.
